Pencil Skirts!

Many moons ago, my opinion of pencil skirts was that they were a somewhat "dressy" look. Boy have my views on that changed in the last few years! I wear pencil skirts for all kinds of occasions; even just grocery shopping! So I decided to make a post showing the many looks of my pencil skirts!
My first pencil skirt purchase was my Black Pencil Skirt from Forever 21, for $11 .

Once I realized how much I loved that pencil skirt, I bought my Taupe Pencil skirt from Body Central for $13.

Recently I also  purchased my Burgundy Pencil Skirt and Mustard Pencil Skirt from Amazon for $12.

This year I also brought out of retirement my Denim Pencil Skirt that I'd bought at Goodwill for $4!

I also have a Grey Pencil Skirt that I bought at Walmart for $9. (I don't gravitate towards wearing that very much, hmm!)

So far that is the extent of my pencil skirt collection, but I do have my eye on a few more!  (There's a whole bunch of print pencil skirts here ranging from $10 - $20! There's  also a lot of solid color pencil skirts here for $12!)

New Series: Casual Friday

Ok, so I've decided to start a new series called "Casual Friday." (Yes, I'm aware that today is Monday, but I wanted to get started asap! Subsequent "casual" posts will be done on Fridays!) Contrary to what you may think, I DO sometimes dress very casually. (Though, some may still not consider it casual, lol.) My philosophy is that casual does not have to equal sloppy!

Tee: $3 (clearance) Walmart (similar here for $4.)
Olive Lace Trim Tank: $4 Walmart
White Shorts: $4 Cut from jeans bought at Goodwill
Flip Flops: $15 (sale) Victoria's Secret
Total: $26
Need more outfit ideas?
